Poor Bray may get hammered by Derry City

Best bets on Friday night

Christy Fagan could fire St Patrick's to victory
1 of 1

From 7.45pm Friday

Derry City's results over the past week make you wonder about the depth of a ten-club League of Ireland Premier Division, even though it was reduced by two teams with the aim of strengthening it.

Derry were blitzed 6-1 by Shamrock Rovers, only to hammer Limerick 5-0 at the Brandywell on Monday. At least the last result showed the Candystripes like their new artificial pitch and they host a poor Bray team on Friday.

Bray are not much good at the back and are not scoring enough goals either. Morale seems low and they could be in for another hammering against a side brimming with offensive potential.

At even shorter odds, Cork City will be popular in accumulators to beat Limerick, who do not have an abundance of quality in attack.

Cork have conceded sparingly and can take the points from this Munster derby without conceding. Limerick will be relieved at Bray's worries, but they are no great shakes.


League of Ireland standings


The game of the week is Waterford's visit to Dundalk. The Blues could have an outside chance of challenging for the title this season and, given that they were poor in Cork, this game will tell us more about their credentials.

The spine of the Blues' side is formidable but Dundalk have not conceded a goal yet and their defence was impressive against Cork. They should win but are priced up accordingly.

St Patrick's have not conceded in their last two games and look capable of troubling Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght, although they need Christy Fagan to up his game. If the brilliant Dubliner can find his form, they can cause an upset.

Pat's look a tougher team to beat this term and Rovers have been a little hit and miss, although they have some talented players.

Athlone are a shambles at the foot of Division One and will do well to keep the score down against a UCD team who look set to net plenty of goals this season.

Galway United can make it two home wins from two by beating Cabinteely. Danny Furlong has already netted four goals and he scored five in one game against Cabo for Wexford in April 2015.
